How Much Does Thermopane Glass Replacement Cost?
The price of thermopane glass replacement costs vary based on the labor required to remove thedamaged glass, replace it and then restore the seal. Factors include:
- Whether replacing the entire window will be necessary
- Whether a single pane replacement will complete the job
- The condition of the window seals
- The condition of the window structure
Glass Doctor provides a quote after your in-home consultation and will replace your thermopane glass for less than you might think.
What Is Thermopane Glass?
Thermopane glass is an industry term for double- or triple-paned windows, known as insulated glass units. Insulated windows have two or three panes separated by spacers to create an air pocket between the glass panels. The panes are sealed to protect the pocket, which is sometimes filled with argon gas to help reduce heat loss.
Insulated glass windows are framed in vinyl or wood, and occasionally aluminum. Rotten wood is a common cause of inefficient seals within double pane windows, and this could lead to more severe window damage if not addressed in a timely manner.
Reasons to Replace Thermopane Glass
If your thermopane window gets foggy, the seal on one of the panes has broken. Windows are constantly expanding and contracting due to changing temperature conditions, and those that get the most direct sunlight tend to experience seal failure. Interestingly enough, vinyl frames also seem to be a factor because of their expansion properties.
A broken seal may seem cosmetic, but if moisture is getting in, heat and AC are getting out. We will evaluate your window and see if the glass damage constitutes a repair or replacement.
If you have single pane windows or foggy double pane glass units, you might want to consider replacing them. Older single pane windows can cause an increase in HVAC costs, and improperly sealed thermopane windows will reduce your energy savings instead of expanding them. Aging windows also require constant caulking and sealing. Regardless of the type of glass, we can replace any window for lower than you might think—with upfront thermopane glass replacement costs provided by Glass Doctor experts.
